Marinas Gas Prices Much Higher than Regular Gas Stations

  If you are heading out to the lakes to celebrate the Memorial Day weekend, you may want to fill up your boat before you get there.
  The cost of regular gas at East Texas marinas is anywhere from 30 cents to one dollar higher than normal gas stations.
  At Villages Marina on Lake Palestine, the cost of regular unleaded gas is $2.89 per gallon.
  "The gas just keeps going up," said Villages Marina Manager Tim Cozart. "Our cost keeps going up, and we just have to keep pushing it up, just to be able to make a profit.
  The Villages Marina offers full service for its gas customers. The Lake Tyler Marina offers only supreme gas for $2.19.
